The CANio 500 enables the easy and quick connection of various analog and digital input and output signals to CAN or CANopen systems - whether in experimental setups, component test stands or vehicles.
A key feature of the CANio 500 are the inputs and outputs for digital and analog signals, which can be configured very flexible. The device has each four analog inputs and outputs with a 12 bit resolution. The analog inputs are available with different voltage ranges, as well as with differential input circuits or current inputs. The output voltage range can be individually programmed in the working range of -10 V to +10 V for each analog output.
In addition, the device has four digital inputs and outputs. The output voltage range can be freely selected within a wide range, at this, the switching threshold of the inputs automatically adjusts according to the selected voltage range and the outputs are short circuit protected.
A special focus, during the development of the CANio 500, was the device operability within CANopen and also basic CAN systems. For this reason, the CANio 500 was designed as a self-starting CANopen slave, with all important parameters, such as Node-ID or sampling rates for the analog inputs, stored as default values on the device. This enables the device to start its operation directly after start up, without making any further settings, and allows due to this the operation in basic CAN systems.
The individual configuration of the CANio 500 for different applications can be done either by loading configuration data via a CANopen master or by sending configuration messages in a pure CAN network or offline via the free CANio configuration tool. Configurations that have been created with the CANio configuration tool can be saved as a project and on customer request preinstalled on ordered devices before delivery.
The CANio Configuration Tool, included in the scope of delivery, enables the easy and fast configuration of the CANio 250 and CANio 500 devices. To download the configuration file to the device a CAN interface is required, e.g. USB-to-CAN V2 compact. The range of functions of the Windows software includes:
